As a Miami Beach local, this place is still my go-to spot when entertaining out-of-towner friends from big cities - New York, LA, San Francisco!
Yes, it is expensive...$20 drinks at a minimum, $8 for a small bottle of generic water (not Vos) but the vibe and energy once inside is like no other. The servers and bouncers (for the most part) are smokin' hot - guys and girls. As shallow as this may sound, if you're having to fork out that much money for drinks, it may as well be to good-looking people.
It's certainly an experience to go to this night club. Regardless of what night you go, it is always packed. Standing from the upper level of the club, one cannot help but feel that "this truly is the land of beautiful people!".
We went most recently on a Saturday night - this is the spot in SoBe. Yes, it is hard to get in- you do have to know people unless you're ready to spend thousands for bottle service. I would highly recommend getting bottle service especially if you're with a group of people- or as a visitor, talk to your hotel's concierge and have them help you set it up in order to avoid having to stand in line.
The laser show is very cool - the neon lights are trippy. They made it rain confetti around midnight - the contortionist girls on their respective stages were amazing (whomever choreographs for them is brilliant). The club also handed out neon sticks sometime after 1 AM, and added more to the already hoppin' scene. It is truly a feast for the senses...the sights and sounds are indescribably sexy- you just have to be there!
The glass stairwell in the middle of the club serves as a catwalk for club-goers to be seen in all their "club glory"! :) Fascinating place to people-watch; interesting to see quite an international crowd in one place with their respective fashion senses: although short skirts and tight dresses seem to be the common denominator. Ha!
My only wish is for people to dance more like they do in Vegas clubs - am not sure if the dance floor was too crowded but there were very few dancers...mostly people just standing, having a great time (popping bottles of expensive champagne) but perhaps not enough space to really get their moves on.
If you're looking for a mellow inexpensive nightclub, this isn't for you; however, if you're looking for a great time and can drop a bunch of money in an upscale nightclub...definitely come here even for just one night of debauchery! A place like Liv is just as good as the attitude that you bring in with you...
